Polk County Middle School’s effort to help Manna Food Bank proved award-winning.

In early March, PCMS participated in a food drive collection with Manna Food Bank. All items collected were donated to Outreach to help with local needs.

Students brought in more than 800 items, with sixth-grade students providing half of that total. Students helped pack the items into boxes and helped volunteers at Outreach load trucks with those goods.
